I'd hoped that once I blocked this sweater, it would stay that way. But after I washed it the first time, I just laid it out on a towel and let it dry. That didn't work.
Oh, knitted sweater number 3, how I love thee. Helena
I figured I should block my Helena before I sewed it together.
I finished knitting the Helena Sweater!
This is where the text should go.

A gigantic THANK YOU to everyone who left suggestions on my last post!
If I was a more experienced knitter I would have thought to do a provisional cast on and then graft the edges together, as suggested by several commenters. Alas, it's too late for that now. Definitely next time, though.
This sweater is knit sideways from cuff to cuff, so I was going to need to do some short rows to add width at the hips. These are my first short rows, ever!
I bought this case to fit in my project bag and keep all my bits and pieces from getting tangled up in my yarn. Each project has it's own set of must-have bits. Here is my knit knit for the Helena.
The project I've been working on the most lately is Hélène
by Veronik Avery. How gorgeous is that sweater?
